Oh, Alan. Sky Sports pundit Alan Pardew might be called into the Sky offices on Monday morning after this ill-advised joke about Tottenham striker Harry Kane’s mum.
Speaking in the build-up to Tottenham’s clash with West Ham United on Saturday, Pardew was joined by Jamie Redknapp and Teddy Sheringham on the panel pitch-side at the London Stadium.
As the trio enjoyed a bit of banter between them, Pardew managed to ruin the moment as he suggested that Sheringham “was about as quick as Harry Kane’s mum” as he made a quip about his former player.
While Sheringham and Redknapp nonchalantly pretended that they didn’t hear him, presented David Jones could be heard responding to Pardew with a sharp “steady” as he knew he may have gone a bit too far.
Pardew has been a regular on Sky’s football coverage so far this season, and while most of us will have a laugh about this and quickly forget it, it remains to be seen if Sky have the same view…
